Testing

Aptos Junior High School's “testing window” for the 2018-19 CAASPP administration is scheduled from May 1st through May 2nd 

All 7th and 8th grade students will be tested in 2 subjects: English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. Both grade level assessments include constructed response items, selected response items (multiple choice), and a performance task. All CAASPP assessments will be completed using Chromebooks (computers.) Additionally, 8th grade students will also sit for the 8th grade level Science Test (CAST). These tests will be administered through your student’s science class on May 28th and 29th.

There will be a modified bell schedule. Additionally, no assessments will be administered on Wednesday, the early release day. Make up assessments will be administered, as needed, during the testing period and continued to completion. The assistant principal, Mr. Phillips, will notify students that require make-up assessments. Passes will be sent for students that require make-up assessments, and attendance will be monitored at the main office. We will do our best to balance our need to complete testing with our desire to be respectful of student needs, the academic demands of coursework, and the instructors.
